Market Street for My Mind’s Eye

April 1st, 2014

I had so much fun a few months ago (amid lots of house craziness, of course) designing a new paper line for My Mind’s Eye. I got to see the actual product last week for the first time, and I was just completely floored at how beautiful everything turned out.

Of course I had to wait until MME released the line, and today they did on their blog. So check out the My Mind’s Eye blog for lots of images (including the papers, which I don’t have yet), and they also are doing a big GIVEAWAY. So go over there for your chance to win!

I was able to grab some product when I was at the warehouse last week, and so I snapped some pictures for your viewing pleasure. My favorite part, of course is how the pressed gold foil looks!

Let’s start with the 8×10 art prints (with foil!). My super favorite part of the line. I am so hanging these up in my office and around the house.

Whats cuter than mustaches on dictionary paper?mustache-art-mymindseye

Of course, one can never have too much washi tape! My favorite is the black/gold stripe.

These little gold foil button sets are just to die for! I love the gold edging on the backer card too.

And the big chipboard sheets… so stinking cute! The camera, cursive words, and globe. Love it all.

CHA 2014 – My Mind’s Eye booth- photo heavy

January 11th, 2014

CHA is the Craft Hobby Association trade show held annually in Anaheim, CA. The company that I design scrapbooking products – My Mind’s Eye – has a booth there, and I usually attend with them and help plan/decorate the trade show booth. At the trade show various craft companies release new products and write orders with various vendors and retailers.

With that intro… I flew into LAX on Thursday with a few designer friends, and we headed straight for a fun day in Santa Monica.

Which, awesomely, included the ferris wheel on the Santa Monica Pier.  Looking at this gorgeous beach and ocean view.

I even took a selfie from way up high.

We also ate a ridiculous amount of italian food. Calories don’t count on work trips, right?

The next morning I was up and at the MME booth. I put together the product boards, and hand-painted a lot of illustrated gold frames.

Here’s a closeup of me painting away! My back was killing me after I finished.

This is the whole wall (missing 2 layouts). Love it!

CHA preview + Cut & Paste giveaway!

July 10th, 2013

When I design a scrapbooking/papercrafting line, it takes so many weeks/months to design it, and then I hand it off, and I don’t think about it or see it for a good 3 months. Then I get to see it again after all those months and it makes me so excited! Especially because I forgot how much hard work it took and I can just enjoy it for how beautiful it is! And I also get excited because at that point I can SHARE it with you.

I want you to have some of this lovely product in your hands, so I’m doing 5 prizes – 4 small grab bags (each with a few embellishments from any given color scheme), and then a full set of the C&P washi tape.

Here’s what I’m giving away:
